to promote its sfo routes as well as free rides on "spare the air" days. there is the moneymaker used at sports stadiums across the country, naming rights. >> i think it would be good to name a station after me.

comfortable because we have a lot of other projects and programs this money can be used for. >> reporter: but councilmembers agree the city does have something to gain from the school district as well, while the district has no operational money it does have capital funds so the two entities are partners up for projects like improving a city swim center on kennedy's campus and a community center at a local park. but we are expecting to see a funding measure on the ballot in 2011. coming up in the next half hour we'll take a look at some of the arguments we'll be hearing next year at this time probably. >> okay. thank you, anne makovec in richmond. >>> plenty of tension during the last two hours of a flight from bangkok to los angeles last night. somebody found a bomb threat on a bathroom mirror on a thai airways flight. there were 189 people on board. as soon as the flight landed at l.a.x., the pilot parked the plane away from the terminal and the fbi moved in. the agents went through the plane, checked luggage, interviewed passenger and crew, found no evidence of explosives and did not

, the officer was essentially invited to use scare straight tactics and there were no objections to the lecture or handcuffing. everything was done in the spirit of reaching a troubled young man headed down the wrong path. why did the boy's mother file a case with internal affairs? >> the fact that the mother went to this as a result of this indicates this was not consensual. in other words, the parents didn't want their son handcuffed that this police officer stepped way over the like and abused his authority. >> reporter: sex between minors is a misdemeanor. so this officer could have gone over and issued a citation perhaps against this 15-year- old boy under that statute. however, juliette, it's a very gray area here. if that officer had doesn't intent of -- had the intent of arrest or citing that boy, then he should have followed through on that. the fact that he didn't, he took the handcuffs off and left, made this potentially a false imprisonment. san jose police have a policy of not allowing officers to intervene in cases in which they are intimately involved such as having a daughter o

's actually confirmed. but they say that they will let us know as soon as new information comes in on exactly what caused this pipeline explosion. here in san bruno, the investigation continues this morning. the ntsb has been collecting evidence from around the blast site, pieces of the pipeline exploded on thursday leaving this crater in the ground in the middle of a neighborhood. the ruptured line was in a high concentration area so it should have more inspections. pg&e says the line was slated to be replaced according to documents. now piece of it have become evidence instead of being simply retired, including a 28- foot section ripped out of the ground and tossed 100 feet into the air by the blast. it's being shipped to washington, d.c. as part of the investigation. did anybody smell gas before the blast? we have gotten several reports that people did smell gas and reported it to pg&e. but pg&e denies it. >> we are not able to find instances of people who reported an odor and we would ask anybody who says that they reported smelling gas to contact us through whatever means. >> reporter: w
tell us about that? >> story. >> reporter: can you explain what kind of caregivers they are? deleon's own mother was one of the people evacuated by the neighbors and firefighters who joined in the good samaritan effort. they drove the women to the hospital in their own cars. none were seriously injured. >> i have always taught my kids, help people when you can. you know? and if anybody ever says anything, oh, you know, what can i do for you helping me, pass the favor along. >> reporter: as you saw from the piece, the owner of the home was not in a very talkative mood, allen so we don't know exactly what the status of those two caregivers is at the moment. but san mateo county officials are asking for an investigation into what happened. they are also going to be recommending a commendation for bob, bobby and others who helped in the situation. >> absolutely. questions that need answers. all right, len ramirez thank you. >>> tough questions about pg&e and the safety of its bay area pipelines. simon perez has the story. >> reporter: a mile section of pipe just north of here in san br

that water had shown up in tests. the key to fighting this corrosion apparently using chemicals or robots to scrape microbes away but apparently pg&e says the pipeline in san bruno was too narrow and had too many bends for some of the recommended treatments. pg&e said it did use ultrasonic techniques to detect corrosion and didn't find any. meanwhile, the public utilities commission has voted to bring an independent panel in to investigation this explosion, looking into what pg&e and state agencies could have done to avoid the disaster. state leaders are pushing to make sure pg&e pays for the cost of the panel out of its own profits so customers do not have to foot the bill. right now, heavy demolition and clean-up are going on here at the site in the neighborhood leveled by that explosion. the 35 homes that were burned to the ground will be removed. that process started yesterday. large excavators and workers in protective gear are working on three homes a day. at the same time, street sweepers and water trucks work to keep the area clean by reducing the threat of toxic dust. >> want to
